Hans Brassler Pearl Brooch

Ancient Pearl

A hint of ancient Egypt, or perhaps it is ancient Greece, graces this diminutive pearl brooch created by Hans Brassler.  Brassler was a wonderfully imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s created elegant, distinct jewels that were uniquely his own.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The care Brassler took in creating a jewel can be seen on the back of this brooch where the edges are clean and the surfaces smoothly finished.  Brassler strove so that each part of a jewel was special and perfectly finished.

Brassler's craftsmanship can also be seen in the early safety clasp and sturdy pin stem which will securely hold this jewel when worn.  The top of the safety clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of The Brassler Company - "14B" inside a double oval.
